Location: United States. New Jersey, to be specific.
How do you identify?: This will be a mouthful - homoromantic asexual genderqueer. I am a girl who prefers male pronouns [I am also partial to being referred to as 'dude' and 'bro'], but I'm not and never will be FTM. I like girls. That's about it.
Interests/hobbies: Writing, editing, drawing, roleplaying, playing w0w sometimes, studying astronomy - I work at a planetarium. I'm also partial to psychology and sociology, and languages; I'm currently learning Japanese. With editing, I'm the editor-in-chief of my college's student newspaper.
Favourite books: Anything by Poppy Z. Brite, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' [Wilde], 'After Dark,' 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' [Murakami]; there is a tonne more that I cannot remember for the life of me right now.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Everyone!
What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere! Bear in mind that my primary language is English, and while I'm going to be in Japanese III in the fall, I am nowhere near fluent enough to have confidence in my letter-writing skills. If anyone wants to help me, though.. :'D
Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Uhh.. y'know, illegal stuff, dead things, etc. The usual. I'm allergic to coconut, in case we wind up sending each other care packages.
What would be in your dream letter or package?: Long letters, drawings, mix CDs, little trinkets, uhh.. candy?? idk, man. Rainbows and giraffes and awesome things.
Anything else you'd like to add?: Stuff and things. I'm painfully awkward. It's nothing against you, if I'm shy for a long time. I really, really like giraffes. I also really like owls and crows. I adore This American Life. I'm interested in BDSM and kind-of-sort-of looking for a Dom. I am very good at doing what I'm told. I don't really like anime, but Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my most favourite things in this universe. I have the worst sleeping habits ever. I can be pedantic and a bit of a jerk. My boss is my best friend. Elliot Smith makes me cry.
Picture (optional): ( under a cut, for the sake of people's friends pages; )
Rabbit in Chinese astrology.
How do you identify?:
A gentleman. Androgyne, very much in to male aesthetics anyway. Born female but never really felt like one (on the other hand how should a female feel like, then? I don't know). Like to dress in old-fashioned men's clothing. I guess I'm something in between. I have reached the state of mind where I just feel like a unique entity without any labels whatsoever. Mostly drawn to men and manly/androgyne women, but I don't think genders matter that much - I love everyone beautiful and inspiring. I'm generally not very interested in sex.
Travelling, hiking, solitude, silence, steam engines, film cameras, classic cars, seaweed, mysticism, found objects, tea-drinking, random activism; Swimming in the lake, making firewood, learning new things, combing through fleamarkets and antique fairs; All sorts of things. I'm a bookbinder and an exceptionally lousy painter. I wish I had more energy to paint, I still have dozens of unfinished boards from 2007 or 2008. Sometimes I just can't get myself together. Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are all part of my everyday life. Things I really need to learn: Welding, woodworking, rare languages, how to use a chainsaw.
